Rockets minus hobbled Capela
Houston Rockets center Clint Capela has a small fracture in his left fibula and will miss approximately four to six weeks, the team announced.
Capela sustained the leg injury during Saturday’s game against the Minnesota Timberwolves.
Capela, 22, has been a key player for the Rockets, who own the NBA’s longest current winning streak with 10 straight victories.
Capela, averaging 11.8 points and eight rebounds, became the starter after Dwight Howard left as a free agent.
